Jenny Lewis's new band Nice as Fuck – featuring Au Revoir Simone's Erika Forster and the Like's Tennessee Thomas – has surprise-released its self-titled debut LP. The nine-track album is available to purchase on iTunes via Lewis' record label, Love's Way.
The album features their throbbing first single, "Door," which the trio released last week. Nice as Fuck made their live debut in April at New York Bernie Sanders benefit concert Bern NY Bern and subsequently served as the opening act on M. Ward's tour.
Lewis reissued her debut solo album, Rabbit Fur Coat, in January. To mark the LP's 10th anniversary, she reunited with the Watson Twins and M. Ward to perform the material live; on September 9th, Lewis and the Twins will launch a 10-date North American tour behind the reissue.
The singer-songwriter has also scheduled a round of August concerts – including a stop at Bon Iver's Eaux Claires Festival – promoting her most recent solo LP, 2014's The Voyager.
Lewis contributed two cover tunes to the expansive Grateful Dead tribute compilation Day of the Dead, released in May.
